Falcon speech from ECB Chief Economist Lane

“The European economy is performing relatively well and is expected to grow by about 1 percent this year,” Lane said, noting that the Eurozone banking system is “in good shape”, although the ECB is “always on the alert”. said.

ECB officials agree that the underlying price pressures will determine the rate decision. With the continuing concerns in the banking sector, ECB officials are also signaling that the most aggressive monetary tightening cycle has come to an end in recent times.
